Earn airline miles with HSBC credit card
Members of British Airways, Asia Miles, Singapore Airlines and Etihad Airways' frequent flyer programmes can now earn air miles when spending on an HSBC Premier Mastercard.
The rewards programme began this week with the relaunch of the UK bank's credit card.
For every £5 spent on the HSBC Premier card, members can earn five airline frequent flier miles with Avios, Etihad Guest, Asia Miles, or Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer.
While this breaks down to one airmile per £1 spent, it only comes into practice each time £5 has been spent. So a £29 total spend would net 25 airmiles, not 29.
HSBC works out the rewards monthly and allots one point for each £5 spent - but one point is worth five airmiles.
At the end of each month, a Premier cardholder's total monthly spend is divided by five and then that figure converted into airmiles.

Points are not 'automatically' converted. You need to action it manually, and points can also be used for Sainsbury / Boots etc vouchers.
Your reference to £29 total spend is for a month. Since I don't know anyone who spends £29 per month on their credit card, some people may think you mean 'per transaction' - which would be incorrect. It would have been fairer to say 'if you spent £598 in a month you would only receive vouchers based on £595 of spend'.
